Tell Congress: No Medals for Murder!
On Dec. 29, 1890, the 7th Cavalry of the United States massacred nearly 300 peaceful Lakota women, men, and children at Cankpe' Opi Wakpa, or Wounded Knee Creek. The U.S. government subsequently awarded the Medal of Honor to soldiers for participating in this heinous slaughter of innocent families. It's time to respect the slain and remove the stain. Tell your senators and House rep: Pass the Remove the Stain Act now! Rescind the 20 Medals of Honor granted to soldiers who participated in the Wounded Knee Massacre.
